Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP advises businesses facing regional, national, and international complications arising from the financial distress, bankruptcy, or liquidation of themselves or their business partners.
Our bankruptcy and creditors’ rights clients include major institutional lenders, energy producers and service providers, industrial companies, real estate developers, commercial concerns, and agricultural/ranching interests. We work to advance and protect the interests of all types of creditor constituencies, including secured and unsecured creditors, lessors and lessees, banks and Chapter 11 financers, and asset purchasers. When necessary, we aggressively defend clients against preference and other avoidance actions. Our team also represents debtors, creditors’ committees, bankruptcy trustees, and investors in troubled companies.
We have significant experience assisting clients in acquiring assets out of bankruptcy, from preparing the transactional documents and developing a winning bidding strategy to closing the transaction.
Our team favors a pragmatic approach, recognizing that bankruptcy is not the right solution for every loan in default or distressed company. The firm’s lawyers have helped clients negotiate and implement out-of-court workouts and reorganizations that involve some of the largest enterprises and lending institutions in the Rocky Mountain West. We also counsel clients on how to manage the risks of insolvency on the front end of mergers and acquisitions and other transactions. When the time comes to pursue assets, we help our clients take advantage of all available avenues to be made whole, including foreclosure, receiverships, assignments for the benefit of creditors, and enforcement and collection of judgments across the country and throughout the world.
We have also aggressively and successfully pursued assets throughout the world on behalf of aggrieved creditors.
